New Call of Duty Report Shoots Down Advanced Warfare 2 Rumor

A new report associated with Call of Duty has potentially shot down a rumor claiming that a sequel to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is in the works. Within the past day, a new rumor sprang up stating that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 was happening at developer Sledgehammer Games and would be released in 2025. And while a number of Call of Duty fans didn't know what to make of this given that Advanced Warfare was a pretty divisive entry in the series, it sounds like this sequel might not be happening after all.

Based on a new report from Charlie Intel, which has had numerous Call of Duty scoops in the past, Advanced Warfare 2 isn't in development at the moment. While Sledgehammer Games is still in line to release a new game in the future following its work on Call of Duty: Vanguard, Charlie Intel states that it's still not known what the studio might be doing. 

Obviously, it's hard to know what to make of this matter given that we now have various reports and rumors directly contradicting one another. In a general sense, a sequel to Advanced Warfare seems to be a bit odd, especially given that the game wasn't all that loved by Call of Duty fans. Not to mention, to see a sequel to Advanced Warfare come about 11 years after the original title releases seems a bit odd. With all of this in mind, it's worth stressing that you should take everything that has been expressed with both of these claims with a major grain of salt until we learn more formally from Activision

In the near future, the one thing that we do know is that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is poised to launch in just a couple of short weeks. The 2022 entry in the series will come to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms on October 28th. 


What do you think about this whole situation? Would you like to see Sledgehammer Games work on a sequel to Advanced Warfare, or would you prefer the studio to create a different Call of Duty game entirely? Let me know either down in the comments or reach out to me on social media at @MooreMan12.
